I have clearly shown photos of it running and not leaking fuel all over the place. It stands 19 tall approx. Fount is 8-1/16 in diameter, and whole lantern weighs 7.2 lbs with some fuel in it, maybe 12oz. I put in there? Ships empty of fuel. It is in USED, as shown, original condition. When I found this lantern it was dirty and dusty. The inside of the tank had some fuel and it was already fairly clean. No BB dance was performed inside this fount. No repairs have been made to any parts except for the paint job on one piece >the cone shaped wide washer plate that would sit inside the collar area and on top of the fount directly at the base of the main stem was a little rusty and missing some nickel plating. I treated the rust and painted it with chrome spray paint. One could remove the paint on that easily to put it back to original. Everything else has only been cleaned. I ran this lantern for 30 minutes without pumping it again once lit and topped off with 3-4 pumps. When I pumped it up I used that hand T handle pump in the photos and it is not included or being offered for sale and I pumped about 10 times initially. When I first lit the lantern, I used a propane torch to preheat the generator. The generator is original to the lantern and has also been cleaned inside. The original packing is in there. The very last photo is after 30 minutes on my iPhone stop watch of run time. It never leaked fuel anywhere. Packing may need to be replaced on valve stem etc… The fount shows 90% nickel plating to be conservative, shows a little brass in places but not bad. It may have 1-2 tiny dimple dents but do not stand out really. The main stem (burner tube assembly) is not perfectly straight either. The handle and shade are in good condition; however, the shade has crinkling to it on two sides. It is not falling apart but does show wear from age and use heat damage? I don’t know. A collar could be made, replacement globe could be had, and I have read somewhere that you can make a globe seat frame piece out of a later coleman lantern frame? I have not added or subtracted any parts to this lantern from the way I found it, except for the paint on cone plate & new peerless mantles. All being said, price is reduced due to missing pieces. This lantern ships in a 14″ X 14″ X 14 box, with whole stem burner assembly removed from fount. Packing weight is 10lbs. Item ships very well packed to USA & Canada buyers and cost depends on your location. The item “1914 1920 Antique Coleman Arc Lantern” is in sale since Sunday, October 21, 2018.
